Although they are a remake of a past game, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee don't feature random encounters. This means that Pokemon won't jump out at you out of nowhere, and you can plan which Pokemon you want to go for next. In our Pokemon Let's Go catch combos guide, we'll be walking you through everything there is to know about the way that catch combos function in both games.
Pokemon Let’s Go Catch Combos
In either Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu or Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee, a catch combo starts when you catch the same Pokemon in succession. When you’ve caught said Pokemon more than once in a row, you’ll get a notification after you’ve successfully captured it that your catch combo has been increased to two in a row, and has thus begun.
To continue the catch combo streak in Pokemon Let’s Go, you need to catch that certain Pokemon repeatedly, without catching any other Pokemon. This can be both easy and tricky, as while it can sometimes be hard to avoid accidentally wandering into Pokemon while exploring the world, you can see all wild Pokemon on the screen that are in your area, and so you know that if you’ve already caught two Psyducks in a row, you can easily see if there’s a third one nearby.
So, what are the benefits of maintaining a catch combo in Pokemon Let’s Go? For a start, they can potentially offer up opportunities to obtain Shiny versions of Pokemon. Both Pokemon Let’s Go games feature Shiny Pokemon, these being rarer and more powerful versions of the base Pokemon, and to find out all you need to know about these elusive creatures, head over to our Pokemon Let’s Go Shinies guide.
But be warned, your chances of obtaining a Shiny Pokemon after maintaining a catch combo are not guaranteed. It’s entirely possible to have a catch combo streak of well over 100, and not have a Shiny version of the Pokemon you’re catching appear. As you can imagine, it’s a bit of a risky timesink.
As of right now, this is absolutely everything you need to know about catch combo streaks in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. Now that we’re all done here, you can check out our Pokemon Let’s Go transfer guide, or our Pokemon Let’s Go Mystery Gift guide for more.
